As a re-cap, I purchased this sofa from Joss and Main. It was a 90" sofa that had an original retail price of $1695 but on the discounted furniture site for only $691. It seemed like too good of a deal to pass up and my fingers and toes were crossed that the gamble of purchasing a sofa on-line, sight unseen, paid off!
He looks really nice and he goes well with my AMAZING and super comfy chairs...
I love the color and the nail head detail... the above photos shows the true color.
HOWEVER.... the sofa is SUPER hard... I've been letting the boys jump on it in the hopes that it would loosen the stuffing... no luck yet... My main beef with the sofa though is that I feel like they MAJORLY cut some corners when making it... I'm a realistic mama of three and I KNOW at some point something is going to spill on this bad boy... and try as I might I will not be able to get the spot out... so I will need to flip a cushion...
That's right people! The fabric does NOT cover the entire chair!!!! The linen material ends and there is a black nylon fabric! It isn't something that I would have EVER thought to ask about! I just assumed that the fabric would be the same on all sides! NOT THE CASE.
Do I have regrets YES... but we are going to make the best out of the situation and live with the sofa for at least the next year and eventually we will invest in another sofa and I will move this one to our play room.
Lesson of the day folks... NEVER buy a sofa that you do not see in person first!!! I had a few people provide that same advice and well... I didn't listen!
A few other things that I hope to tackle in the next year in this room...
- Updated entryway light
- Updated curtains
- Fireplace built out with a larger mantle
- new coffee table -- Want Matt to make me this!
A few years down the road... We plan to redo the floor in a darker/wider wood, updated larger floorboards, and stain beams to match the darker floors.
